President George Washington's 1796 “Farewell Address”

Click an Image to Enlarge It
1797, “Thomas's Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode-Island, Newhampshire & Vermont Almanack,” With the Complete Text of President George Washington’s Farewell Speech, Very Fine.

This is an original Isaiah Thomas almanac, printed at Worcester, MA, late in 1796, for the year 1797. This work contains 48 pages in 7.5” x 4.5” format, stitched with self-wrappers. Among the interesting contents is one of the earliest printings of President Washington's famous September 17, 1796 “Farewell Address,” which appears on pages 36 to 45. Also in this issue is a table of the new French Revolutionary calendar, in which the months have been renamed. This almanac is in nice condition, with typical age toning and some chipping to the outer page edges. There are also a few notations by the original owner of this almanac in the margins. An important and very rare printing.
